And so I no longer hide

And so I no longer hide. I finally made the choice, and soon after, it was clear to see that 90% of all the upset and stress I'd carried through the years was because I hid myself, pretended, smiled when didn't want to, silenced myself when my song was emerging through my very skin. I denied myself and so my inside was a crumbling mess. I stopped hiding and I was blown away by how easy it was to live. Living became natural again. And being me was no longer a problem to be fixed, but a life to be lived, a life to be celebrated.
